8 Week New Year CFT Challenge

8 week New Year CFT Challenge

It’s hard to believe but 2016 is here! It is time to get back on track with our nutrition, get in the gym, and make some goals. We are going to start an 8 week Nutrition challenge on January 4, 2016 and it will end February 29, 2016. That’s soon, right? Don’t worry, we are going to start easy and build over the 8 weeks.
This is not only about weight loss but also about feeling better, having energy, and performing better in the gym. The cost is going to be $10. Below are some details.

WEEK 1-2 (Jan. 4-Jan 17) Clean out the closet!
These first 2 weeks are about cleaning out the pantry and fridge and filling it will healthy and whole foods. Getting rid of the “bad” stuff can be an adjustment so be prepared with good substitutes. Be prepared to eat lean meats, vegetables, some fruits, nuts and seeds, potatoes, whole grains, and minimal sugar. During these weeks you also need to take pictures and measurements of your body. To participate in the challenge you will need to turn in at least your measurements to Lauren.

WEEKS 3-4 (Jan. 18 – 31) Dialing it in!
These weeks will be all about dialing in the amounts of the foods we eat, as well as balancing them out in a ratio that fits your individual needs. You will be encouraged to weigh your food and measure it out, although it might be time consuming it is proven to work. Plus, we need to know how much food we put into our bodies. You will be given general guidelines to follow or the option to purchase specific macros for your needs from Lauren.

WEEKS 5-8 (Feb. 1- 29) Stay the Course!
These last 4 weeks will be all about staying on track and being as consistent as possible. This is when you will see lots of changes in your body and if you are fueling your body properly you will see performance improvements as well. Also, you will be able to receive “points” during these 4 weeks. There will be gym challenges (more info coming soon!) you can participate in to get these points.
